"As the Brotherhood continues to collapse, the vultures begin their descent."
— Mission Preview
|Nick Fury:||People, we've got a brand-new Sentinel force going after mutants in all of our operational zones.|
|Maria Hill:||Even Sentinels we had thought decommissioned have shot their way out of holding facilities and are in the field again.|
|Agent Coulson:||No clues yet as to who was controlling them.|
|Maria Hill:||For now, they appear to be targeting the Brotherhood of Mutants.|
|Professor X:||Director Fury. We must speak of the Brotherhood.|
|Nick Fury:||What's to speak of?|
|Nick Fury:||You're sure about this?|
|Professor X:||Avalanche claims to have information regarding the future of the Brotherhood to offer in exchange for our assistance. His mind is currently too panicked for me to ascertain exactly what it is, but he is telling the truth.|
|Tony Stark:||Just when you think you know who the bad guys are... it's Turncoat City around here.|
|Magneto:||This is not a time to be glib, Stark.|
|Tony Stark:||Well, it's true. The Brotherhood's going to run out of able bodies at this rate.|
|Maria Hill:||Especially if we don't do something about this Sentinel force.|
|Nick Fury:||A plan is already in motion. We've got a new X-Man leading the search for Avalanche: Cannonball. You'll meet him in the field. Move out.|
There might be more Sentinels still inside this secure facility. Send Kitty Pryde to phase in and out on a quick recon.
|Maria Hill:||Kitty, your Phasing Abilities are just what we need to slip in and out of this Sentinel holding facility.
Check and see if any Sentinels are still in there. If not, search for clues about who might be controlling them.
|Kitty Pryde:||Stay tuned. I'll be right back.|
|Kitty Pryde:||It's empty. And when I say empty, I mean all the way. Equipment's been removed. Even the paper towel rack is gone.|
|Maria Hill:||At least we know there won't be any more sentinels coming out.|
A destroyed Sentinel was carrying vials of an unidentified fluid. Ask Beast to analyze them.
|Tony Stark:||Hank, we have a job for you.|
|Tony Stark:||Not you. The other Hank.|
|Beast:||Let's hear it.|
|Tony Stark:||We shot down a Sentinel headed out of town and it was carrying these little vials. Mind telling us what's in them?|
|Beast:||I live only for the analysis of vials, Tony. You know that.|
|Beast:||This is strange. It's an Iso-8 serum, but it appears tailored to bond to reptilian DNA.|
|Tony Stark:||Are we going to be dealing with Iso-Geckos? Iso-Skinks?|
|Beast:||Well, that's the thing. I can tell the DNA used is reptilian, but it doesn't match any known living species. Curiouser and curiouser.|
Sentinel knocked a Quinjet down at this location. The team on the ground needs some extra firepower, fast.
There's a locker full of gene and tissue samples here. Looks like they used to be Mr. Sinister's. Send a hero to cover the lab team while they box up the samples for analysis.
Draw this group of Sentinels away from a populated area. We're not going to let San Francisco turn into a disaster movie.
MiniBoss - Living PharaohEdit
|Cable:||Avalanche's trail has gone cold, but I have tracked down the Living Pharaoh.
He destroyed a Sentinel here and is now holed up inside this building. Do I go in after him?
|It is time for new allegiances! We--Sinister, myself, a few others--who envision a great new work, are now banded together.||Living Pharaoh:|
|Cable:||I've seen Sinister's great new work from the inside. Don't expect applause.|
|You're not a man of Science, Cable. I would not expect you to understand. Sinister, however, does understand. We will build a new mutant race.
You may benefit from this, or become raw material for it. Choose.
|Cable:||Whatever Sinister is doing, I'll do the opposite. Is that clear enough?|
|From the ashes of the Brotherhood, a new mutant power arises. Do you see?||Living Pharaoh:|
|Cable:||Where are all your new friends? Looks like they left you all alone.|
|Professor X:||When Abdol spoke of Mr. Sinister, he was sincere. Although nearby, I cannot pin down Sinister's location without the use of Cerebro.|
|Agent Coulson:||We'll find him soon enough. If he's drawn the Living Pharaoh away from the Brotherhood, who else will he try to recruit?|
|Tony Stark:||All the mad-scientist types.|
|Agent Coulson:||That kind of leaves Mystique and Toad and Blob out in the cold, doesn't it?|
|Tony Stark:||Sinister's not the sentimental type.|
MiniBoss - Sugar ManEdit
|Cannonball:||Hey, Agent, Sugar Man has caught some of the Green Goblin's Test Subjects. He's about to reverse-engineer them, I think.
It's like pulling wings off flies for this guy. He can't get enough of it.
|Someone's crashing my party. That's a good way to get yourself killed.||Sugar Man:|
|Cannonball:||Don't mind me, I just have some questions. Seen Avalanche?|
|When we find Avalanche, we're gonna use him for spare parts. I'm gonna find his seismic gene and peel it out of him.||Sugar Man:|
|Cannonball:||Okay. Here's my other question. Did whoever made you want an uglier, meaner version of M.O.D.O.K.? Because if they did, you're perfect.|
|Now I'll ask you some questions. Do me a favor and resist for a while.||Sugar Man:|
|Cannonball:||Test Subjects got loose while I was taking care of Sugar Man.|
|Agent Coulson:||We'll round them up. You stay on the Sentinel hunt.|
|Maria Hill:||Should we be worried about Apocalypse?|
|Tony Stark:||You mean like in general, or worried that because we just saw Sugar Man, Apocalypse is about to show up?|
|Tony Stark:||Well... yeah. Probably. But my guess is if he was going to make a grand entrance, he'd have done it already.|
MiniBoss - SauronEdit
|Tony Stark:||Gang, check this visual. Fresh in from Bobby, who's been skating around doing recon.|
|Agent Coulson:||Sauron? Is that who that is?|
|Maria Hill:||He's usually stirring things up in the Savage Land. If he's here...|
|Professor X:||Yes. We must expect Mr. Sinister's band of mad genetic tinkers to be eyeing the genomic riches of the Savage Land.|
|Nick Fury:||That's a problem we didn't need.|
|Ahhhh, the exertion of destroying Sentinels has sharpened my appetite. And here you are, brimming with energy I can use. Perfect.||Sauron:|
|Iceman:||Try to drain my life force, buddy, and you'll get the ice-cream headache to end all ice-cream headaches.
Plus, aren't you cold-blooded? You're about to get seriously torpid.
|Iceman:||You don't have a snowball's chance in the Savage Land, dude. Give up now.|
|Iceman:||I chilled him out. There's a bunch of shelves full of samples and chemicals here.|
|Maria Hill:||We'll get a team there to catalogue and recover them.|
|Agent Coulson:||We need to get scouts to the Savage Land sooner rather than later, to make sure Sinister hasn't already gotten established there.|
|Maria Hill:||Dispatching them now. Let's stay focused on Sinister and the Sentinels until we get some solid word back from the Savage Land.|
Boss - Mr. SinisterEdit
|Tony Stark:||There's the big man. Looks like he's mooched up a retinue of Test Subjects.|
|Maria Hill:||To fight for him, or to experiment on?|
|Tony Stark:||My guess would be both.|
|Nick Fury:||We can spare them the experimenting part. Go after him, people. This is one of those times that ass-kicking is a humanitarian endeavor.|
|Scott Summers, I am pleased to see you, as you remind me of one of my finest achievements.||Mr. Sinister:|
|Cyclops:||Do you also remember the time I blasted you into pieces? If not, I can jog your memory.|
|No matter. We will proceed regardless of your input.||Mr. Sinister:|
|Cyclops:||That's funny. I was just thinking my input would proceed regardless of whatever insane scheme you dreamed up.|
|There's nothing insane about it. If the Brotherhood can no longer be trusted, I will take matters into my own hands. In fact I already have.||Mr. Sinister:|
|Cyclops:||So have we.|
|You will be improved. All of you. Or you will be scrapped. That is how progress happens.||Mr. Sinister:|
|Cyclops:||We're not done yet. Where's Avalanche?|
|Cyclops:||There's no sign of Avalanche. Just another horror show of a lab.
Sinister doesn't know where Avalanche is, either.
|Agent Coulson:||I think the Sentinels helped us out here. They led us right to Sinister and his boys, and kept them from focusing on finding Avalanche.|
|Cyclops:||We need to sharpen our focus on that, too.|
|Tony Stark:||Agreed. Let's talk about it back on the Helicarrier.|
|Nick Fury:||Let me get this straight. Avalanche supposedly wants out of the Brotherhood. But we can't find him.
A Sentinel army is going on a country-wide mutant massacre. But we don't know who's pulling the strings.
Is there anything we DO know?
|Maria Hill:||The Brotherhood's being torn apart. The Sentinels might be part of that. Even if they aren't, Mr. Sinister's involvement can't be a coincidence. He's staking his claim to a new leadership role among mutants.|
|Nick Fury:||Prioritize finding out who's behind the Sentinel attacks. Stark and McCoy, you take some of the destroyed Sentinels apart and see if there are traces in their programming.|
|Nick Fury:||Our next stop is New York.|
Group Boss - BastionEdit
|Attention. All mutants are hereby notified:
Mutants who surrender will be examined. Mutants who resist will be eliminated. All Sentinels are now under my control.
|Tony Stark:||Team, I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that we just found out who's controlling the Sentinels.|
|Agent Coulson:||Figures. He's part Sentinel himself.|
|Tony Stark:||Geez, these guys have one-track minds. Not flexible programming at all. But they are consistent.|
|Agent Coulson:||What's his angle? Pure mutant-hating, or is there some other ulterior motive?|
|Tony Stark:||Does it matter? We can shrink his head later. Right now, let's save lives.|
"Sentinels arrive in New York to put an end to the Brotherhood, but an unlikely protector comes to their aid."
— Mission Preview
|Maria Hill:||Bastion has unleashed his Sentinel army on the Brotherhood. There's no way Mystique will be able to handle them.|
|Tony Stark:||This is going to sound cold-hearted but--|
|Magneto:||No. We will not stand idly by while any mutants die at the hands of the Sentinels.|
|Tony Stark:||Okay. Fine. So we'll fight the Sentinels that would be fighting Mystique and her gang. You think they'll be grateful?|
|Professor X:||I think that isn't the point.|
|Magneto:||The point is we will not stand by and permit the slaughter of mutants... and if you would, we have clearly misunderstood your ultimate goals.|
|Tony Stark:||Okay, we'll do it your way. This is me putting on kid gloves for dealing with the Brotherhood... at least until we get Avalanche on board the Helicarrier.|
|Professor X:||There are also Test Subjects marauding through the city. These bear the chemical signature of Green Goblin's serum.|
|Nick Fury:||One more thing we'll have to handle along the way. Let's go, people.|
These weird new Test Subjects all seem to be clustered in one place. Send Hogun there to disable as many of them as possible before they spread through the city.
|Agent Coulson:||Right now most of the new Test Subjects are in one place. If they spread out it's going to take us forever to find them all.
We need to catch as many of them as we can before they cause a city-wide panic.
|Tony Stark:||This is serious business, and calls for a serious Asgardian. Hogun.
There he goes. Not a talker, that guy.
|Agent Coulson:||Some of them are still at large.|
|Tony Stark:||He got a lot of them, though. We can work with it.|
We've got a trapped-civilian problem that only a little bamf-ing can solve. Get Nightcrawler on the case.
|Maria Hill:||Kurt, the last fight here destabilized this building. It's going to come down any second, but there are people trapped inside.|
|Nightcrawler:||I see where you're going, Maria. Tell the paramedics to be ready in case they're hurt.|
|Maria Hill:||Good. There was a TV crew shooting the whole thing. You're a hero.|
|Nightcrawler:||Ah, fame. Wer liebt es nicht?|
Some local gangsters have captured a Test Subject. They're trying to sell it to the highest bidder. Send Hellstrom to convince them that's a bad idea.
|Tony Stark:||Underworld knuckleheads caught a Test Subject. They seem to think someone will pay them good money for it.|
|Maria Hill:||They're probably right. We should make them an offer they can't refuse.|
|Tony Stark:||Hellstrom knows a little about intimidating people. Daimon, make sure they see the trident. And that tattoo.|
|Maria Hill:||But try not to kill anyone. The Maggia's staying out of this mutant war right now, and we'd prefer to keep it that way.|
|Daimon Hellstrom:||Nothing like a little show of demonic power to make criminals wet their pants.|
|Tony Stark:||You enjoyed that a little too much.|
|Daimon Hellstrom:||It's a miserable world, Tony. I get my kicks where I can.|
A Sentinel is threatening a Waldorf school in the basement of this building. We don't know why, and we can't afford to wait around and find out. Eliminate it.
NYPD just tasered a Test Subject, and it actually worked. Send a hero to bring it in before it can get moving again.
MiniBoss - ToadEdit
|Cannonball:||Toad is dodging a Prime Sentinel over here. Should we get in the way, or...?|
|Professor X:||Without a doubt. Go.|
|Cannonball:||I'm going, I'm going.|
|Cannonball:||Sentinel Rescue Service... oh, by the way, have you seen Avalanche?|
|I wouldn't tell you if I had.||Toad:|
|Cannonball:||I know, I know... just making conversation, giving you a chance to bail out on the Brotherhood like Avalanche is doing.|
|Not a chance! The Brotherhood will still be around long after you're gone, chump.||Toad:|
|Don't need your help... actually, looks like you're the one who needs help.||Toad:|
|Cannonball:||The offer stands.|
|Cannonball:||What an ingrate.|
|Tony Stark:||Right? You try to help some people...|
|Professor X:||In the end, Toad is just pitiable. His devotion to Mystique blots everything else out of his mind.|
|Cannonball:||Well, except for the impulse to kill people.|
|Professor X:||That too comes from his devotion. One wonder what he will do if Mystique ever leaves the Brotherhood.|
|Tony Stark:||Right. Like that'll happen.|
MiniBoss - BlobEdit
|Agent Coulson:||Blob has survived a Sentinel assault at this location. Let's see if they softened him up for us.|
|Beast:||I'll go if I may? I've been stuck in the middle of a lab full of Sentinel heads for days. I yearn to converse with anything organic.|
|Agent Coulson:||It's all yours.|
|Man, the Sentinels aren't bad enough. I have to deal with you, too?||Blob:|
|Beast:||This is a tangent, but I've been keeping my mind sharp doing anagrams lately, and you know what? Yours is an awfully tough name to form a good anagram from.|
|What's an anagram?||Blob:|
|Beast:||Oh, you know. Take some words, rearrange the letters, get other words.
Live, evil. Death, hated. Like that. Only 'Fred J. Dukes'... goodness, that one's not easy.
The best I have so far is 'Dusk J. Freed.'
|Don't mess with my name!||Blob:|
|Like I said. Don't mess with Fred J. Dukes!||Blob:|
|Beast:||Judder Fesk! That's the best I can do. Sounds like a Star Wars name.|
|Beast:||I hope I didn't hurt his feelings with the anagram thing, but once I got started thinking about it I couldn't stop.|
|Tony Stark:||Does Blob have feelings?|
|Maria Hill:||Do you?|
|Tony Stark:||No. At least that's what everyone tells me.|
MiniBoss - Prime SentinelsEdit
|Maria Hill:||We have a visual on Avalanche! He is engaged with Prime Sentinels!
Get down there and give him a hand, Agent. Then try to bring him in.
|Mutant, resistance will be met with lethal force.||Prime Sentinel:|
|Avalanche:||My resistance is lethal force!|
|Initiate final capture.||Prime Sentinel:|
|Avalanche:||You're not taking me alive!|
|Professor X:||Avalanche, we can help--|
|Avalanche:||Get out of my head, X. Gotta bounce.|
|Cyclops:||Where did he go?|
|Professor X:||He has something we need but his panic obscures it in his mind. We must keep the rest of the Brotherhood away from him, give him a chance to breathe.|
Boss - MystiqueEdit
|Maria Hill:||We've found Mystique. She's trying to rally the last Brotherhood elements, but the Sentinels are overrunning them.|
|Agent Coulson:||Any sign of Avalanche?|
|Maria Hill:||None. Either the Sentinels got him, or...|
|Professor X:||They did not. He is still alive, and in hiding. I am trying to discover where, but it appears I am not the only interested party.|
|Magneto:||Let us see if Mystique will listen to reason.|
|Tony Stark:||That's funny. I remember Xavier saying the same thing about you not too long ago.|
|Magneto:||You're familiar, I'm sure, with the aphorisms about stopped clocks and blind squirrels?|
|Magneto:||Your Brotherhood leadership is not particularly distinguished thus far, is it?|
|We're doing fine without you. And if you've come to take the reins again, forget it.||Mystique:|
|Magneto:||That is not why I have come. I'm here to save mutant lives. Even yours.|
|I don't need saving. You do, traitor.||Mystique:|
|Magneto:||Traitor? Hardly. The Brotherhood is disintegrating. I am trying to salvage something from the wreckage.
You may be sure Bastion will offer you no such terms.
|You're not getting the Brotherhood back, Magneto. It's mine.||Mystique:|
|The traitor returns. If only you'd shown this much devotion to the Brotherhood when it was yours.||Mystique:|
|Magneto:||It is difficult to hear myself called a traitor to mutants.|
|Professor X:||As always, consider the source.|
|Tony Stark:||Cheer up. We haven't let anyone got killed yet.|
Epic Boss - BastionEdit
|Agent Coulson:||Bastion and a band of Nimrod Sentinels just leveled half a block.|
|Nick Fury:||Any particular reason?|
|Agent Coulson:||Cross-indexing... ah. One of the buildings housed an underground shooting range suspected to be a Hellfire Club training center.|
|Maria Hill:||Interesting development.|
|Omega Sentinel:||I will face him.|
|Tony Stark:||Someone's got a grudge.|
|Omega Sentinel:||Yeah, I do. He is the worst-case scenario for what could have happened to me. I despise him.|
|A turncoat. You carry the Legacy of Bolivar Trask within you, and yet you align yourself with a mutant filth.||Bastion:|
|Omega Sentinel:||That legacy was forced on me, Bastion. I never wanted it. Now that it is mine, I will do with it as I please.
You are a creation of madness. The X-men, the Brotherhood, now the Hellfire Club. Where will this destruction stop?
|The Hellfire Club was further down my target list until they decided to harbor Avalanche.
Don't worry. I'll get to them in time. I'll get to all of you in time.
That's when the destruction will stop.
|You misunderstand your function, Karima.||Bastion:|
|Now are you ready to join the hunt?||Bastion:|
|Omega Sentinel:||I am already hunting. You are the quarry.|
|Omega Sentinel:||He has withdrawn. It's hard to know how much damage I did.|
|Agent Coulson:||Looked like quite a bit, but he repairs himself fast enough that we're not going to take him out unless we can pin him down in one place.|
|Omega Sentinel:||Did you hear what he said about Avalanche?|
|Agent Coulson:||Yeah. We'll start a new intel sweep of Hellfire facilities. You make sure those Nimrods aren't going to get up again.|
|Tony Stark:||Bastion is still at large and we're still playing whack-a-Sentinel. What next?|
|Nick Fury:||London? What for?|
|Professor X:||That is where the remaining Brotherhood members have gone. Avalanche as well. He has rejoined them.|
|Tony Stark:||So he's back in the band, or...?|
|Professor X:||I cannot be sure, but I suspect Sebastian Shaw has decided it is time to involve the Hellfire Club in this affair.|
|Tony Stark:||Oh joy. Off to London, then.|
"The members of the Brotherhood escape to London, by request of Sebastian Shaw. Out of the flames and into the Hellfire?"
— Mission Preview
|Agent Coulson:||Quick debrief now that we're on-site in London. Here's what we think we know.|
|Maria Hill:||The Sentinel detachment from New York is here in London, targeting known Hellfire Club locations.
Bastion has decided the Hellfire Club is going up against the wall along with the Brotherhood.
|Agent Coulson:||Thanks to telepathic surveillance, we know Mystique and Dragoness are here in London, most likely with the remaining Brotherhood members.|
|Professor X:||I suspect Shaw is attempting to absorb the remnants of the Brotherhood into the Hellfire Club.|
|Maria Hill:||That makes sense. He'll take them in because he needs their help defending the Hellfire Club against the Green Goblin's takeover.|
|Agent Coulson:||Speaking of the Green Goblin, we're going to see more of his Test Subjects. Our field teams just searched a cargo ship with traces of the Goblin serum in its containers.|
We're testing a new device to mislead Sentinels. Give it a trial run and see if it works. Phoenix is waiting to spring the ambush.
|Phoenix:||I'm here, Hank. But if a lot of them come running, I might need a little help.|
|Beast:||Perfect. It worked like a charm. And Jean, you were also perfect--as always.|
|Phoenix:||You smooth talker.|
MI-13 needs a briefing about the Brotherhood/Hellfire Club situation. Send Cyclops to get them up to speed.
|Nick Fury:||We have a request from MI-13 that they be informed as to the current status of the Brotherhood.|
|Professor X:||Scott, you are perhaps the ideal person to meet with them and deliver a briefing.|
|Cyclops:||You sure you don't want to?|
|Professor X:||They will be more reassured by your appearance.|
|Cyclops:||That's done. They're staying on the sidelines unless things get out of control.|
|Nick Fury:||Figures. Let's make sure they don't.|
There's a Sentinel in the Chunnel. Get someone big and mean down there to decommission it before it either gets to France or collapses the whole thing.
Test Subjects have appeared in several crowded areas near here. We need a tactical response to coordinate our counterattack without causing panic.
Captured Hellfire Club soldiers overpowered their guards and are shooting their way out of a makeshift jail here. Send a hero to abort their escape.
MiniBoss - MystiqueEdit
|Cannonball:||I just saw Mystique here. She went inside. There are Hellfire Club soldiers all over the place.|
|Professor X:||Avalanche is present. Shaw's attempts at blocking me have ceased.|
|Tony Stark:||Convenient. You think it's deliberate? Is he setting us up?|
|Professor X:||Possibly. It is clear that Avalanche is in danger, however. He has been trying to play a sophisticated spy's game, and he lacks the sophistication to play it well.|
|Maria Hill:||Go on in, Cannonball.|
|So you thought Shaw would bring you in out of the cold with the rest of us? Think again, traitor. We know what you've been doing.
You led them to us. That was your plan all along.
|Avalanche:||Oh, look at those tire tracks all over my back. They've been onto you, Mystique. You think you can hide from Xavier--|
|Cannonball:||Avalanche, get out of here. I'll handle this.|
|You were saying, Avalanche? Tell me again how you're not a lying, traitorous piece of--||Mystique:|
|Avalanche:||Spare me. You loved it when Magneto left because you got to be in charge. But what happened then? You've been wrong about everything. I'm out.|
|Cannonball:||I think he's got a point.|
|I think the Brotherhood's better off without him... but the X-Men are going to miss you.||Mystique:|
|Stay there, Cannonball. Once I hunt Avalanche down and kill him, I'll be back for you.||Mystique:|
|You're about to see the Brotherhood isn't quite done yet.||Mystique:|
|Cannonball:||I cleared a path for Avalanche. He's on the move. You see him?|
|Maria Hill:||There's a Quinjet inbound tracking him.|
MiniBoss - DragonessEdit
|Maria Hill:||Avalanche isn't out of the woods yet. Dragoness caught him.
Agent, he's going to need some help, and quick.
|Avalanche:||You and I aren't going to have a problem... if you get out of my way.|
|You're not getting away quite as easily as that. The Brotherhood is a lifetime membership, you know. The only way out is to die.||Dragoness:|
|Avalanche:||There is no Brotherhood anymore! You want to be Shaw's stooge, go ahead, but I have other plans.|
|You're not going anywhere... except into the ground.||Dragoness:|
|Might as well die facing me instead of trying to outrun someone who can fly.||Dragoness:|
|Cannonball:||Dragoness is gone, no sign of Mystique... we're in the clear for the moment.|
|Maria Hill:||You and Avalanche hold your position. We're coming in to pick you up.|
|Avalanche:||You guys sure waited long enough.|
|Cannonball:||Quit griping. If you'd slowed down back in New York, you'd have saved yourself a lot of trouble.|
MiniBoss - SeleneEdit
|Maria Hill:||Selene knocked that Quinjet carrying Avalanche and Cannonball out of the sky. They're still on the move but they're going to need some cover.|
|Scarlet Witch:||This is an opportunity I can hardly pass up.|
|Tony Stark:||I was hoping you'd say that, Wanda. Witch fight! Pass the popcorn.|
|Avalanche:||Ohh, man. Nobody told me there'd be a Quinjet crash.|
|Pardon the direct approach, but Sebastian was quite emphatic. You two aren't going anywhere.||Selene:|
|Scarlet Witch:||Yes, they are.|
|Well. My luck just keeps getting better. Now I'll have three prizes to bring back to Sebastian.||Selene:|
|Scarlet Witch:||Avalanche, you're proving to be a lot of work. I hope you're worth it.|
|I always get what I want, Wanda.||Selene:|
|Scarlet Witch:||You'll be returning to Sebastian empty-handed. If you return to him at all.|
|Scarlet Witch:||I have lost sight of Selene. Emma? Charles? Do you know where she is?|
|Emma Frost:||She is no longer anywhere near you, Wanda. Stand down, darling. It appears you've won.|
|Scarlet Witch:||I'll get Avalanche and Cannonball back to the Helicarrier.|
|Maria Hill:||Better do it fast. Selene isn't your only enemy, there are Sentinels closing in on your position.|
Boss - Sebastian ShawEdit
|Emma Frost:||There's Sebastian. Excuse me. He and I have some things to sort out.|
|Nick Fury:||Keep an eye on her.|
|Emma Frost:||I heard that, Nicholas.|
|Professor X:||How long will you profess your suspicions of her, Director Fury?|
|Nick Fury:||As long as it keeps her motivated, Professor.|
|Typical Emma Frost. Watch, and watch, and watch. Then make a grand entrance when it's too late to make a difference.||Sebastian Shaw:|
|Emma Frost:||Sebastian, darling, you're sweet to take in Brotherhood refugees, but you and I both know you'll just feed them to the Sentinels to buy yourself time. I can't watch that happen.|
|So somewhere in that diamond body is a beating heart? Hard to believe. You're here to be Queen again... but will you be White or Black?||Sebastian Shaw:|
|Emma Frost:||Either is fine. As long as it's my move.|
|Fury has deployed his queen too soon. Always a tactical error.||Sebastian Shaw:|
|Emma Frost:||I'll spare you the checkmate figures of speech, Sebastian. But you really do have no place to go.|
|Emma Frost:||Sebastian and his little court of knights and bishops are gone. I suspect Selene whisked them away somewhere.|
|Maria Hill:||There are sentinels targeting your location, Emma. We're targeting them, but you might not have a smooth trip back to the Helicarrier.|
|Emma Frost:||Understood, Maria.
Do we still have Avalanche, or did Shaw reclaim him?
|Maria Hill:||He's still here. I think we're in good shape.|
|Emma Frost:||Cheers all around, then.|
|Tony Stark:||The Brotherhood of Mutants has basically ceased to exist. I always thought we'd be a little happier about that when it happened.|
|Maria Hill:||We would be, except we didn't really win anything.|
|Tony Stark:||Don't be so sensitive. Where we had the Brotherhood, now we've got Bastion and legions of Sentinels, Sinister and a bunch of mad scientists, and Shaw absorbing Mystique and the mutants loyal to her.|
|Maria Hill:||Everything's reshuffled. Two years ago we were worried about Magneto and Mystique, now we're worried about Sinister and Shaw.|
|Emma Frost:||Plus ça change...|
|Tony Stark:||Anyway. Welcome aboard, Avalanche. What did you bring us, anyway? We always expect presents when a new guy joins.|
|Tony Stark:||Ooh, tricky. So without their MGH-fueled drone army, the Brotherhood had to run for the hills.|
|Avalanche:||Yeah. That's when I knew it was time to get out.|
|Maria Hill:||All right. Time for a full debrief. Let's get back to New York.|
